The sinking of all the German ships by their crew* in the English harbor in which they had been interned since the armistice, leads the Seattle Times to make this comment under the above title: "A British correspondent was informed by Admiral von Reuter. com mander of the German fleet sunk last Saturday in Scapa Flow, that the ships were sent to the bottom because the German Emperor, at the begin ning of the war, directed that no warship should fall into the enemy's hands. "Von Reuter ostensibly handed over the German fleet as the agent of the Ebert government. "Yet , his statement makes plain the fact that he considered, and still considers himself under the command of the exiled former Kaiser. "This circumstance is worth the thoughtful attention of those who have been wondering whether the liberalization of 'new' Germany is more than a mere camouflage to save the Hohenzollerns from teli humiliation of I signing a peace treaty dictated by the victorious Allied states." TRANSCENDS PARTY INTERESTS. There are plentiful signs that thousands of American men and women both within and beyond the pale of political parties have approved and are heeding President Wilson's request that the League of Nations be not con sidered as a partisan issue. Former President Taft. Former Attorney General Wickersham and Former Senator Burton of Ohio are among the notable Republicans who are urging ratification of the League by the United States Senate but they are not alone in their advocacy. Reports from every section of the country show that men and women who doubtless have political preferences are subordinating these to their love of country; that their concern for peace in the world, now and here after, transcends their regard for names and slogans of parties. The League has been the subject of many indorsements by organizations repre senting almost every sort of interest and activity—commercial, industrial, economic, civic and patriotic. In the membership of these organizations there must have been men and women of different and dissident political views, but they seem to have been one in their belief that the League of Nations is an insurance against war, and one also in their wish to estab lish it without delay. Hostile senators may continue to attract attention by their vociferous opposition, but their din is no measure of the League's popularity. There are thousands —still silent —who will express themselves in a compelling fashion when they know the time has come. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge is an able historian and biographer. Among his writings is a biography of Alexander Hamilton. The strange thing about it now is that the founder of the Federalist party held about the saijke relationship toward the adoption of the constitution of the United States that Mr. Lodge holds toward the League of Nations. There were things about the constitution that Hamilton didn't like. jußt as some of the articles of the covenant of the League of Nations do not meet with Senator Lodge's approval. But Hamilton was big enough and patriotic enough to give his support to the constitution's adoption, and for that he is praised by Mr. Lodge in his writings. "Hamilton's confidence in his own theory deepened and his faith in the existing constitution declined. But when the work was complete at Philadelphia, when he had put his name to the compromise which he had anticipated, and in wfyich he rejoiced, he gave his adherence to the new constitution and the new system," wrote Mr. Lodpe. "Had he been an agitator, or a sentimentalist of muddy morals and high purposes, a visionary and an idealist, he would have Btood up and howled against this constitution; which was not what he wanted, and which fell so short of his own standard. As he was none of these things, but a patridklc man of clear and practical mind, he knew that the first rule of successful and beneficial statesmanship was not to sulk because one cannot have jnst what he wants, but to take the best things obtainable, and sustain it to the uttermost." Senator Lodge upon occasions has declared for a League of Nations. He ought to realise, just as Hamilton realized, that its covenant cannot be perfected in all thihgs when drafted, but that amendments will become necessary from time to time, as it became necessary from time to time to amend the Constitution. Senator Lodge now seems to forget that the first rule of successful statesmanship is "not to sulk because one cannot have just what he wants," but to take the best thing obtainable. Too bad Senator Lodge is not big enough to earn the commendation he bestowed updn Alexander Hamilton. Almost six months, six tedious, trying months, have elapsed since the peace conference first began} its deliberations at Paris, but the tre mendous task has been accomplished, Oermatay's unconditional acceptance of the treaty has been received and the world and its men and women can now proceed to re-establish old-time normal ways. The ending of the indecision and strife naturally coincident to the drafting of the treaty, the final adoption of the basis upon which the world is to'rejuvenate and recast itself after four and one-half horrible years of war, ought to loosen the bonds of all uncertainty and set things to moving speedily. Heaven knows the world has a lot to do! The sorry feature of it is that Germany today appears to have no more respect for a treaty than it did that day now nearly five years ago when it violated Belgium's neutrality as a mere scrap of paper. It still is a nation without honor—it'B word is not worth the paper it is written on. The world must watch it and keep it in leash. Well, boys—and girls, too —the fight is on, sure "nough. fifteen months ahead of the first official round. Roland H. Hartley's hat hit the ring with a bang the other day, as the first Republican candidate for governor; the dust was not yet settled when H&rve H. Phipps shied his lid into the same arena, for lieutenant governor. In the nineteen sixteen campaign Hartley entered the races so late he failed to hit "high" before the primaries though he was going some when that untoward event occurred and landed in second place. His present actions indicate that he seeks to profit by that experience. Why Phipps shouM be so anxious to get Into the field early seems strange. Perhaps he figures the woods are going to be well populated. It occurs to us. in this connection, that Governor Hart and Senator C&rlyon. president of the senate in the last session, ought to make a good team in that campaign. Wonder if they won't get into it when the going gets good? The next big event on onr local program, jumping the Fourth of July for which no special observance is planned here, is the annual Chau tauqua the middle of next month. The program this year Is excellent, the entertainment being varied so that it is amusing and likewise instruc tive. This will be the fifth consecutive year the Chautauqua has played here; from the of attendance it ought to exced them all. rur ".YASHIN*. TON* ST A N OAF; I>. 01-YMI'IA. WASH., FRIDAY.

Vol. IX. No. 34. Kentucky celebrated, the 7th of June, the anniversary of the arrival of Boone in Kentucky. A slight shock of an earthquake was felt last Sunday about 4 o'clock p. m. and one quite violent Wednes day morning about 5 o'clock. The latter was, we learn, also felt at Stellacoom and Seattle. It is said that Mount Baker has been unusually active the past few days, if the smoke surrounding its top is an index of its volcanic nature. Aside from the nov elty of the occurrence and the conse quent comment thereon no impres sion appears to be produced upon the community by this unusual phenom enon. The Ball on the Fourth—The ball to be given the evening of July sth by Columbia Engine company prom ises to be the best ever had on the Sound. The arrangements have as sumed such a wide scope that It prom ises to be the feature of the day and doubtless many will participate with us in the celebration who will be drawn hither mainly by this Induce ment. The pavilion is nearly com pleted and is large enough to accom modate 30 seta in quadrille. It is proposed to have the sides and roof elegantly festooned with evergreens and flowers, while a fountain in toe center of the room will throw its cooling Jets above the heads of the merry dancers and fall back Into a large vase decorated with moss and flowers. The supper, contributed by the ladies, will be spread in the Olym pic hall. The dancers will many of them be in fancy costume. A letter from Seattle states that the "invincibles" having abandoned their organisation, will not partici pate in celebration here on the Fourth. The people of Pierce county, we learn, contemplate celebrating the Fourth on Saturday, the 3rd of July, so that the observance will not inter fere with that occurring here on Mon day. Mr. J. L. Allison has been se lected to deliver the oration. We learn from Victoria papers that fires aro doing considerable damage in the upper country. This probably accounts for the hazy condition of the atmosphere hereabouts the past few days. The Seattle Intelligencer says that Messrs. Hines, Stone & Co. of that place announce their intention soon to erect a fireproof brick store 60 feet wide by 120 in length, to be two stories in height, with iron front. The same firm also contemplates building a wharf 500 feet in length, with an L. of 120 feet. Our citizens must bestir themselves if they do not intend to be outdone in enterprise by our neigh bors of Seattle. The total assessed valuation of tax able property in this county foots up this year $911,129, an increase of $123,267 over last year. Grand Larceny—Last Thursday, during the temporary absence of Councilman Frost and his family, his dwelling in Swantown was entered by one Russell Phillips, a colored boy of some 13 or 14 years of age, who ap propriated to his own use the alder man's coat, vest and pantaloons, the pockets of the latter containing some S6O in coin. The young scamp went at once upon the rampage, scattering the money about with looseness. On Sunday evening the clothes and unexpended portion of the money, amounting to some S3O, were recov ered. The thief was first detected from the fact of his not being big enough for his stolen breeches. He was brought before Justice Henry and, not finding bail, was committed to await the action of the district court in November next. Mr. Kellett has just returned from San Francisco, whither he has been to purchase, a full supply of goods in his line. The firm has been enlarged by the admission of Mr. Scott, late of California, to an interest in the business, while the storeroom has been enlarged and shelves provided for a stock of dry goods. It is'said that Qen. McKinney of this place, E. ¥. Coleman of Victoria. f says the Good Judge—' "And remember it, too." <4"^ The better die quslity of your chew, the more you'll enjoy it. 1 yp A You'll get more out of your to bacco money, too—you'll save part of it for something else. fl / A small chew of this quality IB / tobacco tastes good and it \1 / lasts and lasts.

Thanks to an error on the part of the manufac turer, we received several times the number of shoes that we had ordered. As these were bought at the old price, we find ourselves in the fortunate position of being able to offer reliable footwear at considerably less than the present market value. All styles, from the trimmest Eng lish shape to the broad toe army last. GOTTFELD'S 811 BAST FOURTH STRUT and others intend soon to attempt an ascent of Mt. Rainier. The new reading room is com pleted with the exception of the paint ing and presents a cosy appearance which will doubtless make it a favor ite place of resort. It is understood that the mall serv ice on the Sound will soon be in creased to a semi-weekly route. Col. Saml. Ross supersedes Cen. McKlnney as superintendent of In dian affairs. The Tumw&ter bridge will soon be completed. When the draw is fin ished it will he ready for foot-passen gers and as soon as the grading is done, for teamß. The fare by stage from Portland to San Francisco Is now $45, a reduc tion of $lO. Work is progressing finely on the new engine house. Portland.—Operations on the Nor thern Pacific railroad will be imme diately commenced on the Sound. Parties are now on the way tbfther. The government of Oreat Britain has completed arrangements for tak ing charge of all the telegraphic lines of the United Kingdom.
